There are huge ants crawling all over the front of a theatre in the Cuban capital, a naked man tethered to the sea wall, and two women crocheting non-stop in the sweltering sunshine.
It is all part of the Havana Bienal, whose organisers have decided to bring much of the art work out of “elite” galleries this year and into the public space, allowing more people than ever access to the exhibits and performances.
So in some of the city’s shabbiest backstreets, giant portraits of elderly local residents have appeared on crumbling walls.
The wrinkles on their faces blend with the cracks in the brickwork.

newyorker:

On February 10th, 1967, around twenty-five members of an anarchist collective known as Black Mask, wearing black balaclavas and carrying giant skulls, took to the streets of the financial district. The photographer Larry Fink was there; he says that “they had nothing but their own stealth, and no support.” They hoped to stoke a revolution. “They were working from a massive historic misinterpretation,” Fink says. See some of Fink’s shots of the march, as well as some of his protest pictures from the Vietnam era, here: http://nyr.kr/ngQtWo

The Art of Saif al-Islam Gadhafi

As we speak, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi, the son and would-be heir to Moammar Gadhafi, is on the run and still vowing not to surrender to the rebels in Libya. Under very different circumstances in 2002, he staged an exhibition of his art in London. More recent exhibitions of his work were shown in Moscow and Brazil in 2010.
